Kano Deputy Gov Apologises To NSA Ribadu  

Kano State deputy governor, Comrade Aminu Abdussalam, has apologised to the National Security Adviser (NSA), Nuhu Ribadu, over a statement he made alleging that the latter provided the security cover for the deposed Emir of Kano, Aminu Ado Bayero, to re-enter the city to foment trouble.

The deputy governor made the apology while addressing a press conference early Monday morning at the Government House in Kano.

The deputy governor explained that he had to acknowledge that they were misled into making the allegation against Ribadu, saying: “We apologise to the National Security Adviser, his person and office for any embarrassment and inconveniences this might have caused him.”

He stated they were shocked from the beginning when Ribadu’s name was mentioned in the plot to impose the deposed Emir on Kano using federal government might.

The deputy governor noted that knowing his pedigree and integrity, Ribadu will never come out to deny the plot or his involvement if he was actually involved in it.

“We are humans and can err at any time. On my behalf and the Governor of Kano State, I want to assure the NSA that we are assuring him of our continued support and cooperation in discharging his duty as the NSA.

“We were really worried and shocked when we found out that he was not behind the plan to forcefully impose a dethroned Emir on Kano, so we apologise,” he said.

The deputy governor finally called on President Bola Tinubu to thoroughly investigate the happenings in Kano State over the Kano Emirship tussle to ensure that peace reigns.
